Statement by IRS Commissioner John Koskinen on The Fiscal Year 2015 Budget

The Fiscal Year 2015 Budget proposal is a critical step forward in order for us to improve vital taxpayer services and enforcement efforts. Funding the IRS at this level will be a good investment for the nation, helping taxpayers get the service they need and strengthening compliance efforts in key areas, including identity theft, refund fraud and offshore compliance. Every dollar invested in IRS enforcement provides a strong return on investment in revenue collection, plus an added protection in deterring potential fraud. It also halts the decline in key enforcement personnel, and allows the agency to again invest in necessary basic infrastructure and training. In the meantime, we continue looking for more efficiencies to get the most out of every dollar of the budget.

 

The Fiscal Year 2015 Budget will put a stop to significant declines in taxpayer service over the past four years. We are doing everything we can to maximize our services with our current resources, and IRS employees are working hard to minimize delays and deliver as much service as possible. However, it’s clear we need to do more to help taxpayers, and the proposed seven percent increase for taxpayer services will be a big help.

Hnr block taxes Net Investment Income Tax. Hnr block taxes  For purposes of the Net Investment Income Tax (NIIT), net investment income does not include distributions from a qualified retirement plan (for example, 401(a), 403(a), 403(b), 457(b) plans, and IRAs). Hnr block taxes However, these distributions are taken into account when determining the modified adjusted gross income threshold. Hnr block taxes Distributions from a nonqualified retirement plan are included in net investment income. Hnr block taxes See Form 8960, Net Investment Income Tax—Individuals, Estates, and Trusts, and its instructions for more information.

Hnr block taxes  For plan years beginning after 2002, a qualified employer plan (retirement plan) can maintain a separate account or annuity under the plan (a deemed IRA) to receive voluntary employee contributions. Hnr block taxes If the separate account or annuity otherwise meets the requirements of an IRA, it will be subject only to IRA rules. Hnr block taxes An employee's account can be treated as a traditional IRA or a Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes For this purpose, a “qualified employer plan” includes: A qualified pension, profit-sharing, or stock bonus plan (section 401(a) plan), A qualified employee annuity plan (section 403(a) plan), A tax-sheltered annuity plan (section 403(b) plan), and A deferred compensation plan (section 457 plan) maintained by a state, a political subdivision of a state, or an agency or instrumentality of a state or political subdivision of a state. Hnr block taxes Designated Roth accounts.

Hnr block taxes These elective deferrals are included in your income, but qualified distributions from these accounts are not included in your income. Hnr block taxes Designated Roth accounts are not IRAs and should not be confused with Roth IRAs. Hnr block taxes Contributions, up to their respective limits, can be made to Roth IRAs and designated Roth accounts according to your eligibility to participate. Hnr block taxes A contribution to one does not impact your eligibility to contribute to the other. Hnr block taxes See Publication 575, for more information on designated Roth accounts. Hnr block taxes Introduction Regardless of your age, you may be able to establish and make nondeductible contributions to an individual retirement plan called a Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes Contributions not reported. Hnr block taxes   You do not report Roth IRA contributions on your return. Hnr block taxes What Is a Roth IRA? A Roth IRA is an individual retirement plan that, except as explained in this chapter, is subject to the rules that apply to a traditional IRA (defined next). Hnr block taxes It can be either an account or an annuity. Hnr block taxes Individual retirement accounts and annuities are described in chapter 1 under How Can a Traditional IRA Be Opened. Hnr block taxes To be a Roth IRA, the account or annuity must be designated as a Roth IRA when it is opened. Hnr block taxes A deemed IRA can be a Roth IRA, but neither a SEP IRA nor a SIMPLE IRA can be designated as a Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes Unlike a traditional IRA, you cannot deduct contributions to a Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes But, if you satisfy the requirements, qualified distributions (discussed later) are tax free. Hnr block taxes Contributions can be made to your Roth IRA after you reach age 70½ and you can leave amounts in your Roth IRA as long as you live. Hnr block taxes Traditional IRA. Hnr block taxes   A traditional IRA is any IRA that is not a Roth IRA or SIMPLE IRA. Hnr block taxes Traditional IRAs are discussed in chapter 1. Hnr block taxes When Can a Roth IRA Be Opened? You can open a Roth IRA at any time. Hnr block taxes However, the time for making contributions for any year is limited. Hnr block taxes See When Can You Make Contributions , later under Can You Contribute to a Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes Can You Contribute to a Roth IRA? Generally, you can contribute to a Roth IRA if you have taxable compensation (defined later) and your modified AGI (defined later) is less than: $188,000 for married filing jointly or qualifying widow(er), $127,000 for single, head of household, or married filing separately and you did not live with your spouse at any time during the year, and $10,000 for married filing separately and you lived with your spouse at any time during the year. Hnr block taxes You may be able to claim a credit for contributions to your Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes For more information, see chapter 4. Hnr block taxes Is there an age limit for contributions?   Contributions can be made to your Roth IRA regardless of your age. Hnr block taxes Can you contribute to a Roth IRA for your spouse?   You can contribute to a Roth IRA for your spouse provided the contributions satisfy the Kay Bailey Hutchison Spousal IRA limit discussed in chapter 1 under How Much Can Be Contributed, you file jointly, and your modified AGI is less than $188,000. Hnr block taxes Compensation. Hnr block taxes   Compensation includes wages, salaries, tips, professional fees, bonuses, and other amounts received for providing personal services. Hnr block taxes It also includes commissions, self-employment income, nontaxable combat pay, military differential pay, and taxable alimony and separate maintenance payments. Hnr block taxes For more information, see What Is Compensation? under Who Can Open a Traditional IRA? in chapter 1. Hnr block taxes Modified AGI. Hnr block taxes   Your modified AGI for Roth IRA purposes is your adjusted gross income (AGI) as shown on your return with some adjustments. Hnr block taxes Use Worksheet 2-1 , later, to determine your modified AGI. Hnr block taxes    Do not subtract conversion income when figuring your other AGI-based phaseouts and taxable income, such as your deduction for medical and dental expenses. Hnr block taxes Subtract them from AGI only for the purpose of figuring your modified AGI for Roth IRA purposes. Hnr block taxes How Much Can Be Contributed? The contribution limit for Roth IRAs generally depends on whether contributions are made only to Roth IRAs or to both traditional IRAs and Roth IRAs. Hnr block taxes Worksheet 2-1. Hnr block taxes Modified Adjusted Gross Income for Roth IRA Purposes Use this worksheet to figure your modified adjusted gross income for Roth IRA purposes. Hnr block taxes 1.

Hnr block taxes Enter: $188,000 if married filing jointly or qualifying widow(er), $10,000 if married filing separately and you lived with your spouse at any time during the year, or $127,000 for all others 13. Hnr block taxes   Is the amount on line 12 more than the amount on line 13? If yes, see the note below. Hnr block taxes  If no, the amount on line 12 is your modified adjusted gross income for Roth IRA purposes. Hnr block taxes       Note. Hnr block taxes If the amount on line 12 is more than the amount on line 13 and you have other income or loss items, such as social security income or passive activity losses, that are subject to AGI-based phaseouts, you can refigure your AGI solely for the purpose of figuring your modified AGI for Roth IRA purposes. Hnr block taxes (If you receive social security benefits, use Worksheet 1 in Appendix B to refigure your AGI. Hnr block taxes ) Then go to line 3 above in this Worksheet 2-1 to refigure your modified AGI. Hnr block taxes If you do not have other income or loss items subject to AGI-based phaseouts, your modified adjusted gross income for Roth IRA purposes is the amount on line 12 above. Hnr block taxes Roth IRAs only. Hnr block taxes   If contributions are made only to Roth IRAs, your contribution limit generally is the lesser of: $5,500 ($6,500 if you are age 50 or older), or Your taxable compensation. Hnr block taxes   However, if your modified AGI is above a certain amount, your contribution limit may be reduced, as explained later under Contribution limit reduced . Hnr block taxes Roth IRAs and traditional IRAs. Hnr block taxes   If contributions are made to both Roth IRAs and traditional IRAs established for your benefit, your contribution limit for Roth IRAs generally is the same as your limit would be if contributions were made only to Roth IRAs, but then reduced by all contributions for the year to all IRAs other than Roth IRAs. Hnr block taxes Employer contributions under a SEP or SIMPLE IRA plan do not affect this limit. Hnr block taxes   This means that your contribution limit is the lesser of: $5,500 ($6,500 if you are age 50 or older) minus all contributions (other than employer contributions under a SEP or SIMPLE IRA plan) for the year to all IRAs other than Roth IRAs, or Your taxable compensation minus all contributions (other than employer contributions under a SEP or SIMPLE IRA plan) for the year to all IRAs other than Roth IRAs. Hnr block taxes   However, if your modified AGI is above a certain amount, your contribution limit may be reduced, as explained below under Contribution limit reduced . Hnr block taxes   Simplified employee pensions (SEPs) are discussed in Publication 560. Hnr block taxes Savings incentive match plans for employees (SIMPLEs) are discussed in chapter 3. Hnr block taxes Repayment of reservist distributions. Hnr block taxes   You can repay qualified reservist distributions even if the repayments would cause your total contributions to the Roth IRA to be more than the general limit on contributions. Hnr block taxes However, the total repayments cannot be more than the amount of your distribution. Hnr block taxes Note. Hnr block taxes If you make repayments of qualified reservist distributions to a Roth IRA, increase your basis in the Roth IRA by the amount of the repayment. Hnr block taxes For more information, see Qualified reservist repayments under How Much Can Be Contributed? in chapter 1. Hnr block taxes Contribution limit reduced. Hnr block taxes   If your modified AGI is above a certain amount, your contribution limit is gradually reduced. Hnr block taxes Use Table 2-1, later, to determine if this reduction applies to you.

You can make contributions to a Roth IRA for a year at any time during the year or by the due date of your return for that year (not including extensions). Hnr block taxes You can make contributions for 2013 by the due date (not including extensions) for filing your 2013 tax return. Hnr block taxes This means that most people can make contributions for 2013 by April 15, 2014. Hnr block taxes What if You Contribute Too Much? A 6% excise tax applies to any excess contribution to a Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes Excess contributions. Hnr block taxes   These are the contributions to your Roth IRAs for a year that equal the total of: Amounts contributed for the tax year to your Roth IRAs (other than amounts properly and timely rolled over from a Roth IRA or properly converted from a traditional IRA or rolled over from a qualified retirement plan, as described later) that are more than your contribution limit for the year (explained earlier under How Much Can Be Contributed? ), plus Any excess contributions for the preceding year, reduced by the total of: Any distributions out of your Roth IRAs for the year, plus Your contribution limit for the year minus your contributions to all your IRAs for the year. Hnr block taxes Withdrawal of excess contributions. Hnr block taxes   For purposes of determining excess contributions, any contribution that is withdrawn on or before the due date (including extensions) for filing your tax return for the year is treated as an amount not contributed. Hnr block taxes This treatment only applies if any earnings on the contributions are also withdrawn. Hnr block taxes The earnings are considered earned and received in the year the excess contribution was made. Hnr block taxes   If you timely filed your 2013 tax return without withdrawing a contribution that you made in 2013, you can still have the contribution returned to you within 6 months of the due date of your 2013 tax return, excluding extensions. Hnr block taxes If you do, file an amended return with “Filed pursuant to section 301. Hnr block taxes 9100-2” written at the top. Hnr block taxes Report any related earnings on the amended return and include an explanation of the withdrawal. Hnr block taxes Make any other necessary changes on the amended return. Hnr block taxes Applying excess contributions. Hnr block taxes    If contributions to your Roth IRA for a year were more than the limit, you can apply the excess contribution in one year to a later year if the contributions for that later year are less than the maximum allowed for that year. Hnr block taxes Can You Move Amounts Into a Roth IRA? You may be able to convert amounts from either a traditional, SEP, or SIMPLE IRA into a Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes You may be able to roll over amounts from a qualified retirement plan to a Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes You may be able to recharacterize contributions made to one IRA as having been made directly to a different IRA. Hnr block taxes You can roll amounts over from a designated Roth account or from one Roth IRA to another Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes Conversions You can convert a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes The conversion is treated as a rollover, regardless of the conversion method used. Hnr block taxes Most of the rules for rollovers, described in chapter 1 under Rollover From One IRA Into Another , apply to these rollovers. Hnr block taxes However, the 1-year waiting period does not apply. Hnr block taxes Conversion methods. Hnr block taxes   You can convert amounts from a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA in any of the following three ways. Hnr block taxes Rollover. Hnr block taxes You can receive a distribution from a traditional IRA and roll it over (contribute it) to a Roth IRA within 60 days after the distribution. Hnr block taxes Trustee-to-trustee transfer. Hnr block taxes You can direct the trustee of the traditional IRA to transfer an amount from the traditional IRA to the trustee of the Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes Same trustee transfer. Hnr block taxes If the trustee of the traditional IRA also maintains the Roth IRA, you can direct the trustee to transfer an amount from the traditional IRA to the Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes Same trustee. Hnr block taxes   Conversions made with the same trustee can be made by redesignating the traditional IRA as a Roth IRA, rather than opening a new account or issuing a new contract. Hnr block taxes Income. Hnr block taxes   You must include in your gross income distributions from a traditional IRA that you would have had to include in income if you had not converted them into a Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes These amounts are normally included in income on your return for the year that you converted them from a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes If you must include any amount in your gross income, you may have to increase your withholding or make estimated tax payments. Hnr block taxes See Publication 505, Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax. Hnr block taxes More information. Hnr block taxes   For more information on conversions, see Converting From Any Traditional IRA Into a Roth IRA in chapter 1. Hnr block taxes Rollover From Employer's Plan Into a Roth IRA You can roll over into a Roth IRA all or part of an eligible rollover distribution you receive from your (or your deceased spouse's): Employer's qualified pension, profit-sharing, or stock bonus plan (including a 401(k) plan); Annuity plan; Tax-sheltered annuity plan (section 403(b) plan); or Governmental deferred compensation plan (section 457 plan). Hnr block taxes Any amount rolled over is subject to the same rules for converting a traditional IRA into a Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes See Converting From Any Traditional IRA Into a Roth IRA in chapter 1. Hnr block taxes Also, the rollover contribution must meet the rollover requirements that apply to the specific type of retirement plan. Hnr block taxes Rollover methods. Hnr block taxes   You can roll over amounts from a qualified retirement plan to a Roth IRA in one of the following ways. Hnr block taxes Rollover. Hnr block taxes You can receive a distribution from a qualified retirement plan and roll it over (contribute) to a Roth IRA within 60 days after the distribution. Hnr block taxes Since the distribution is paid directly to you, the payer generally must withhold 20% of it. Hnr block taxes Direct rollover option. Hnr block taxes Your employer's qualified plan must give you the option to have any part of an eligible rollover distribution paid directly to a Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes Generally, no tax is withheld from any part of the designated distribution that is directly paid to the trustee of the Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes Rollover by nonspouse beneficiary. Hnr block taxes   If you are a designated beneficiary (other than a surviving spouse) of a deceased employee, you can roll over all or part of an eligible rollover distribution from one of the types of plans listed above into a Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes You must make the rollover by a direct trustee-to-trustee transfer into an inherited Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes   You will determine your required minimum distributions in years after you make the rollover based on whether the employee died before his or her required beginning date for taking distributions from the plan. Hnr block taxes For more information, see Distributions after the employee’s death under Tax on Excess Accumulation in Publication 575. Hnr block taxes Income. Hnr block taxes   You must include in your gross income distributions from a qualified retirement plan that you would have had to include in income if you had not rolled them over into a Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes You do not include in gross income any part of a distribution from a qualified retirement plan that is a return of contributions (after-tax contributions) to the plan that were taxable to you when paid. Hnr block taxes These amounts are normally included in income on your return for the year of the rollover from the qualified employer plan to a Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes If you must include any amount in your gross income, you may have to increase your withholding or make estimated tax payments. Hnr block taxes See Publication 505, Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax. Hnr block taxes For more information on eligible rollover distributions from qualified retirement plans and withholding, see Rollover From Employer's Plan Into an IRA in chapter 1. Hnr block taxes Military Death Gratuities and Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (SGLI) Payments If you received a military death gratuity or SGLI payment with respect to a death from injury that occurred after October 6, 2001, you can contribute (roll over) all or part of the amount received to your Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes The contribution is treated as a qualified rollover contribution. Hnr block taxes The amount you can roll over to your Roth IRA cannot exceed the total amount that you received reduced by any part of that amount that was contributed to a Coverdell ESA or another Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes Any military death gratuity or SGLI payment contributed to a Roth IRA is disregarded for purposes of the 1-year waiting period between rollovers. Hnr block taxes The rollover must be completed before the end of the 1-year period beginning on the date you received the payment. Hnr block taxes The amount contributed to your Roth IRA is treated as part of your cost basis (investment in the contract) in the Roth IRA that is not taxable when distributed. Hnr block taxes Rollover From a Roth IRA You can withdraw, tax free, all or part of the assets from one Roth IRA if you contribute them within 60 days to another Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes Most of the rules for rollovers, described in chapter 1 under Rollover From One IRA Into Another , apply to these rollovers. Hnr block taxes However, rollovers from retirement plans other than Roth IRAs are disregarded for purposes of the 1-year waiting period between rollovers. Hnr block taxes A rollover from a Roth IRA to an employer retirement plan is not allowed. Hnr block taxes A rollover from a designated Roth account can only be made to another designated Roth account or to a Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes If you roll over an amount from one Roth IRA to another Roth IRA, the 5-year period used to determine qualified distributions does not change. Hnr block taxes The 5-year period begins with the first taxable year for which the contribution was made to the initial Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes See What are Qualified Distributions , later. Hnr block taxes Rollover of Exxon Valdez Settlement Income If you are a qualified taxpayer (defined in chapter 1, earlier) and you received qualified settlement income (defined in chapter 1, earlier), you can contribute all or part of the amount received to an eligible retirement plan which includes a Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes The rules for contributing qualified settlement income to a Roth IRA are the same as the rules for contributing qualified settlement income to a traditional IRA with the following exception. Hnr block taxes Qualified settlement income that is contributed to a Roth IRA, or to a designated Roth account, will be: Included in your taxable income for the year the qualified settlement income was received, and Treated as part of your cost basis (investment in the contract) in the Roth IRA that is not taxable when distributed. Hnr block taxes For more information, see Rollover of Exxon Valdez Settlement Income in chapter 1. Hnr block taxes Rollover of Airline Payments If you are a qualified airline employee (defined next), you may contribute any portion of an airline payment (defined below) you receive to a Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes The contribution must be made within 180 days from the date you received the payment. Hnr block taxes The contribution will be treated as a qualified rollover contribution. Hnr block taxes The rollover contribution is included in income to the extent it would be included in income if it were not part of the rollover contribution. Hnr block taxes Also, any reduction in the airline payment amount on account of employment taxes shall be disregarded when figuring the amount you can contribute to your Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes Qualified airline employee. Hnr block taxes    A current or former employee of a commercial airline carrier who was a participant in a qualified defined benefit plan maintained by the carrier which was terminated or became subject to restrictions under Section 402(b) of the Pension Protection Act of 2006. Hnr block taxes These provisions also apply to surviving spouses of qualified airline employees. Hnr block taxes Airline payment. Hnr block taxes    An airline payment is any payment of money or other property that is paid to a qualified airline employee from a commercial airline carrier. Hnr block taxes The payment also must be made both: Under the approval of an order of federal bankruptcy court in a case filed after September 11, 2001, and before January 1, 2007, and In respect of the qualified airline employee’s interest in a bankruptcy claim against the airline carrier, any note of the carrier (or amount paid in lieu of a note being issued), or any other fixed obligation of the carrier to pay a lump sum amount. Hnr block taxes Any reduction in the airline payment amount on account of employment taxes shall be disregarded when figuring the amount you can roll over to your traditional IRA. Hnr block taxes Also, an airline payment shall not include any amount payable on the basis of the airline carrier’s future earnings or profits. Hnr block taxes Are Distributions Taxable? You do not include in your gross income qualified distributions or distributions that are a return of your regular contributions from your Roth IRA(s). Hnr block taxes You also do not include distributions from your Roth IRA that you roll over tax free into another Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes You may have to include part of other distributions in your income. Hnr block taxes See Ordering Rules for Distributions , later. Hnr block taxes Basis of distributed property. Hnr block taxes   The basis of property distributed from a Roth IRA is its fair market value (FMV) on the date of distribution, whether or not the distribution is a qualified distribution. Hnr block taxes Withdrawals of contributions by due date. Hnr block taxes   If you withdraw contributions (including any net earnings on the contributions) by the due date of your return for the year in which you made the contribution, the contributions are treated as if you never made them. Hnr block taxes If you have an extension of time to file your return, you can withdraw the contributions and earnings by the extended due date. Hnr block taxes The withdrawal of contributions is tax free, but you must include the earnings on the contributions in income for the year in which you made the contributions. Hnr block taxes What Are Qualified Distributions? A qualified distribution is any payment or distribution from your Roth IRA that meets the following requirements. Hnr block taxes It is made after the 5-year period beginning with the first taxable year for which a contribution was made to a Roth IRA set up for your benefit, and The payment or distribution is: Made on or after the date you reach age 59½, Made because you are disabled (defined earlier), Made to a beneficiary or to your estate after your death, or One that meets the requirements listed under First home under Exceptions in chapter 1 (up to a $10,000 lifetime limit). Hnr block taxes Additional Tax on Early Distributions If you receive a distribution that is not a qualified distribution, you may have to pay the 10% additional tax on early distributions as explained in the following paragraphs. Hnr block taxes Distributions of conversion and certain rollover contributions within 5-year period. Hnr block taxes   If, within the 5-year period starting with the first day of your tax year in which you convert an amount from a traditional IRA or rollover an amount from a qualified retirement plan to a Roth IRA, you take a distribution from a Roth IRA, you may have to pay the 10% additional tax on early distributions. Hnr block taxes You generally must pay the 10% additional tax on any amount attributable to the part of the amount converted or rolled over (the conversion or rollover contribution) that you had to include in income (recapture amount). Hnr block taxes A separate 5-year period applies to each conversion and rollover. Hnr block taxes See Ordering Rules for Distributions , later, to determine the recapture amount, if any. Hnr block taxes   The 5-year period used for determining whether the 10% early distribution tax applies to a distribution from a conversion or rollover contribution is separately determined for each conversion and rollover, and is not necessarily the same as the 5-year period used for determining whether a distribution is a qualified distribution. Hnr block taxes See What Are Qualified Distributions , earlier. Hnr block taxes   For example, if a calendar-year taxpayer makes a conversion contribution on February 25, 2013, and makes a regular contribution for 2012 on the same date, the 5-year period for the conversion begins January 1, 2013, while the 5-year period for the regular contribution begins on January 1, 2012. Hnr block taxes   Unless one of the exceptions listed later applies, you must pay the additional tax on the portion of the distribution attributable to the part of the conversion or rollover contribution that you had to include in income because of the conversion or rollover. Hnr block taxes   You must pay the 10% additional tax in the year of the distribution, even if you had included the conversion or rollover contribution in an earlier year. Hnr block taxes You also must pay the additional tax on any portion of the distribution attributable to earnings on contributions. Hnr block taxes Other early distributions. Hnr block taxes   Unless one of the exceptions listed below applies, you must pay the 10% additional tax on the taxable part of any distributions that are not qualified distributions. Hnr block taxes Exceptions. Hnr block taxes   You may not have to pay the 10% additional tax in the following situations. Hnr block taxes You have reached age 59½. Hnr block taxes You are totally and permanently disabled. Hnr block taxes You are the beneficiary of a deceased IRA owner. Hnr block taxes You use the distribution to buy, build, or rebuild a first home. Hnr block taxes The distributions are part of a series of substantially equal payments. Hnr block taxes You have unreimbursed medical expenses that are more than 10% (or 7. Hnr block taxes 5% if you or your spouse was born before January 2, 1949) of your adjusted gross income (defined earlier) for the year. Hnr block taxes You are paying medical insurance premiums during a period of unemployment. Hnr block taxes The distributions are not more than your qualified higher education expenses. Hnr block taxes The distribution is due to an IRS levy of the qualified plan. Hnr block taxes The distribution is a qualified reservist distribution. Hnr block taxes Most of these exceptions are discussed earlier in chapter 1 under Early Distributions . Hnr block taxes Please click here for the text description of the image. Hnr block taxes Is Roth Distributions a Qualified Distribution? Ordering Rules for Distributions If you receive a distribution from your Roth IRA that is not a qualified distribution, part of it may be taxable. Hnr block taxes There is a set order in which contributions (including conversion contributions and rollover contributions from qualified retirement plans) and earnings are considered to be distributed from your Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes For these purposes, disregard the withdrawal of excess contributions and the earnings on them (discussed earlier under What if You Contribute Too Much ). Hnr block taxes Order the distributions as follows. Hnr block taxes Regular contributions. Hnr block taxes Conversion and rollover contributions, on a first-in, first-out basis (generally, total conversions and rollovers from the earliest year first). Hnr block taxes See Aggregation (grouping and adding) rules, later. Hnr block taxes Take these conversion and rollover contributions into account as follows: Taxable portion (the amount required to be included in gross income because of the conversion or rollover) first, and then the Nontaxable portion. Hnr block taxes Earnings on contributions. Hnr block taxes Disregard rollover contributions from other Roth IRAs for this purpose. Hnr block taxes Aggregation (grouping and adding) rules. Hnr block taxes   Determine the taxable amounts distributed (withdrawn), distributions, and contributions by grouping and adding them together as follows. Hnr block taxes Add all distributions from all your Roth IRAs during the year together. Hnr block taxes Add all regular contributions made for the year (including contributions made after the close of the year, but before the due date of your return) together. Hnr block taxes Add this total to the total undistributed regular contributions made in prior years. Hnr block taxes Add all conversion and rollover contributions made during the year together. Hnr block taxes For purposes of the ordering rules, in the case of any conversion or rollover in which the conversion or rollover distribution is made in 2013 and the conversion or rollover contribution is made in 2014, treat the conversion or rollover contribution as contributed before any other conversion or rollover contributions made in 2014. Hnr block taxes Add any recharacterized contributions that end up in a Roth IRA to the appropriate contribution group for the year that the original contribution would have been taken into account if it had been made directly to the Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes   Disregard any recharacterized contribution that ends up in an IRA other than a Roth IRA for the purpose of grouping (aggregating) both contributions and distributions. Hnr block taxes Also disregard any amount withdrawn to correct an excess contribution (including the earnings withdrawn) for this purpose. Hnr block taxes Example. Hnr block taxes On October 15, 2009, Justin converted all $80,000 in his traditional IRA to his Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes His Forms 8606 from prior years show that $20,000 of the amount converted is his basis. Hnr block taxes Justin included $60,000 ($80,000 − $20,000) in his gross income. Hnr block taxes On February 23, 2013, Justin made a regular contribution of $5,000 to a Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes On November 8, 2013, at age 60, Justin took a $7,000 distribution from his Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes The first $5,000 of the distribution is a return of Justin's regular contribution and is not includible in his income.

Hnr block taxes Ishmael, age 32, opened a Roth IRA in 2000. Hnr block taxes He made the maximum contributions to it every year. Hnr block taxes In addition, he made the following transactions into his Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes In 2005, he converted $10,000 from his traditional IRA into his Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes He filled out a 2005 Form 8606 and attached it with his 2005 Form 1040. Hnr block taxes He entered $0 on line 17 of Form 8606 because he took a deduction for all the contributions to the traditional IRA, therefore he has no basis. Hnr block taxes He entered $10,000 on line 18 of Form 8606. Hnr block taxes In 2011, he rolled over the entire balance of his qualified retirement plan, $20,000, into a Roth IRA when he changed jobs. Hnr block taxes He used a 2011 Form 1040 to file his taxes. Hnr block taxes He entered $20,000 on line 16a of Form 1040 because that was the amount reported in box 1 of his 2011 Form 1099-R. Hnr block taxes Box 5 of his 2011 Form 1099-R reported $0 since he did not make any after-tax contributions to the qualified retirement plan. Hnr block taxes He entered $20,000 on line 16b of Form 1040 since that is the taxable amount that was rolled over in 2011. Hnr block taxes The total balance in his Roth IRA as of January 1, 2013 was $105,000 ($50,000 in contributions from 2000 through 2012 + $10,000 from the 2005 conversion + $20,000 from the 2011 rollover + $25,000 from earnings). Hnr block taxes He has not taken any early distribution from his Roth IRA before 2013. Hnr block taxes In 2013, he made the maximum contribution of $5,500 to his Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes In August of 2013, he took a $85,500 early distribution from his Roth IRA to use as a down payment on the purchase of his first home. Hnr block taxes See his filled out Illustrated Recapture Amount—Allocation Chart, later, to see how he allocated the amounts from the above transactions. Hnr block taxes Based on his allocation, he would enter $20,000 on his 2013 Form 5329, line 1 (see Amount to include on Form 5329, line 1 , above). Hnr block taxes He should also report $10,000 on his 2013 Form 5329, line 2, and enter exception 09 since that amount is not subject to the 10% additional tax on early distributions. Hnr block taxes Illustrated Recapture Amount—Allocation Chart Enter the amount from your 2013 Form 8606, line 19 $85,500 Before you begin: You will need your prior year Form(s) 8606 and income tax return(s) if you entered an amount on any line(s) as indicated below.

Hnr block taxes  **Only include any contributions (usually Form 1099-R, box 5) that were taxable to you when made and rolled over to a Roth IRA. Hnr block taxes How Do You Figure the Taxable Part? To figure the taxable part of a distribution that is not a qualified distribution, complete Form 8606, Part III. Hnr block taxes Must You Withdraw or Use Assets? You are not required to take distributions from your Roth IRA at any age. Hnr block taxes The minimum distribution rules that apply to traditional IRAs do not apply to Roth IRAs while the owner is alive. Hnr block taxes However, after the death of a Roth IRA owner, certain of the minimum distribution rules that apply to traditional IRAs also apply to Roth IRAs as explained later under Distributions After Owner's Death . Hnr block taxes Minimum distributions. Hnr block taxes   You cannot use your Roth IRA to satisfy minimum distribution requirements for your traditional IRA. Hnr block taxes Nor can you use distributions from traditional IRAs for required distributions from Roth IRAs. Hnr block taxes See Distributions to beneficiaries , later. Hnr block taxes Recognizing Losses on Investments If you have a loss on your Roth IRA investment, you can recognize the loss on your income tax return, but only when all the amounts in all of your Roth IRA accounts have been distributed to you and the total distributions are less than your unrecovered basis. Hnr block taxes Your basis is the total amount of contributions in your Roth IRAs. Hnr block taxes You claim the loss as a miscellaneous itemized deduction, subject to the 2%-of-adjusted-gross-income limit that applies to certain miscellaneous itemized deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040). Hnr block taxes Any such losses are added back to taxable income for purposes of calculating the alternative minimum tax. Hnr block taxes Distributions After Owner's Death If a Roth IRA owner dies, the minimum distribution rules that apply to traditional IRAs apply to Roth IRAs as though the Roth IRA owner died before his or her required beginning date. Hnr block taxes See When Can You Withdraw or Use Assets? in chapter 1. Hnr block taxes Distributions to beneficiaries. Hnr block taxes   Generally, the entire interest in the Roth IRA must be distributed by the end of the fifth calendar year after the year of the owner's death unless the interest is payable to a designated beneficiary over the life or life expectancy of the designated beneficiary. Hnr block taxes (See When Must You Withdraw Assets? (Required Minimum Distributions) in chapter 1. Hnr block taxes )   If paid as an annuity, the entire interest must be payable over a period not greater than the designated beneficiary's life expectancy and distributions must begin before the end of the calendar year following the year of death. Hnr block taxes Distributions from another Roth IRA cannot be substituted for these distributions unless the other Roth IRA was inherited from the same decedent. Hnr block taxes   If the sole beneficiary is the spouse, he or she can either delay distributions until the decedent would have reached age 70½ or treat the Roth IRA as his or her own. Hnr block taxes Combining with other Roth IRAs. Hnr block taxes   A beneficiary can combine an inherited Roth IRA with another Roth IRA maintained by the beneficiary only if the beneficiary either: Inherited the other Roth IRA from the same decedent, or Was the spouse of the decedent and the sole beneficiary of the Roth IRA and elects to treat it as his or her own IRA. Hnr block taxes Distributions that are not qualified distributions. Hnr block taxes   If a distribution to a beneficiary is not a qualified distribution, it is generally includible in the beneficiary's gross income in the same manner as it would have been included in the owner's income had it been distributed to the IRA owner when he or she was alive. Hnr block taxes   If the owner of a Roth IRA dies before the end of: The 5-year period beginning with the first taxable year for which a contribution was made to a Roth IRA set up for the owner's benefit, or The 5-year period starting with the year of a conversion contribution from a traditional IRA or a rollover from a qualified retirement plan to a Roth IRA, each type of contribution is divided among multiple beneficiaries according to the pro-rata share of each. Hnr block taxes See Ordering Rules for Distributions , earlier in this chapter under Are Distributions Taxable. Hnr block taxes Example. Hnr block taxes When Ms. Hnr block taxes Hibbard died in 2013, her Roth IRA contained regular contributions of $4,000, a conversion contribution of $10,000 that was made in 2009, and earnings of $2,000. Hnr block taxes No distributions had been made from her IRA. Hnr block taxes She had no basis in the conversion contribution in 2009. Hnr block taxes When she established this Roth IRA (her first) in 2009, she named each of her four children as equal beneficiaries. Hnr block taxes Each child will receive one-fourth of each type of contribution and one-fourth of the earnings. Hnr block taxes An immediate distribution of $4,000 to each child will be treated as $1,000 from regular contributions, $2,500 from conversion contributions, and $500 from earnings. Hnr block taxes In this case, because the distributions are made before the end of the applicable 5-year period for a qualified distribution, each beneficiary includes $500 in income for 2013. Hnr block taxes The 10% additional tax on early distributions does not apply because the distribution was made to the beneficiaries as a result of the death of the IRA owner. Hnr block taxes If distributions from an inherited Roth IRA are less than the required minimum distribution for the year, discussed in chapter 1 under When Must You Withdraw Assets? (Required Minimum Distributions), you may have to pay a 50% excise tax for that year on the amount not distributed as required. Hnr block taxes For the tax on excess accumulations (insufficient distributions), see Excess Accumulations (Insufficient Distributions) under What Acts Result in Penalties or Additional Taxes? in chapter 1. Hnr block taxes If this applies to you, substitute “Roth IRA” for “traditional IRA” in that discussion. Hnr block taxes Prev  Up  Next   Home   More Online Publications
